Join/Renew

Memberships were extended in October for the time we were closed in 2020—demonstrating our loyalty to you as you supported us. We urge you to keep your membership support current as we navigate these challenging times. Check out Members Connection and JBFC at Home to see all you can take advantage of from home. Find other helpful info on these pages: Reel Partners, FAQs, and Virtual Marquee Help. For those who prefer to join or renew by mail, here is a printable form.

Members support our community and help sustain our outstanding film programming. Through unique series, special events, Q&As, and exhibitions, we offer many opportunities to engage with other filmgoers and experience movies on the big screen, or virtually in your own home. Your membership goes even farther than your ticket purchase to help meet the expenses of curating and programming all that we screen. For that support, we thank JBFC members with benefits including a $5 member ticket discount, members-only invitations, complimentary ticket offers and more. Here’s a Welcome Brochure to help members learn about all the benefits of membership. Join or renew today!
